Berlin Mitte is the capital’s most central district, and also one of the most diverse. So many of Berlin’s most iconic attractions lie within Mitte, including the Museum Island, the Berliner Dom, the TV Tower, Hackescher Markt, the historical Reichstag and many more famous sites, many of which run along the picturesque banks of the River Spree. Mitte is also known for its turbulent history as it is one of the two boroughs which are made up of both former West and East Berlin. One can experience this history by just walking along Mitte’s famous boulevard, Unter den Linden, which connects Alexanderplatz in the former East to the former West via Brandenburg Gate.
This district, as is the case with most areas in Berlin, is also incredibly charming. The inner-city streets are abundant with beautifully restored Altbau buildings from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s and nestled under and between are designer boutiques, quaint galleries, trendy cafés, international restaurants and cosy wine bars.
Berlin Mitte is also very clean, green and safe. The streets are lined with trees and there are multiple green spaces, including Volkspark Humboldthain, in which to relax.
